The global navigation satellite system market reached a value of about USD 175.2 billion in 2021. The market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.30% in the period of 2023-2028.
GNSS are used in all forms of transportation and Positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), playing a critical role in telecommunications, emergency response, precision agriculture, mining, and scientific research. The global GNSS market is significantly expanding both in terms of devices and services.
The Radio Navigation Module provides the main elements of the Satellite Navigation System, including the functional basis and Pseudorange Measuraments. The students will learn about Pseudorange errors and Navigation problems.
The second half of the Program focuses on the all Global Navigation Satellite Systems and GNSS receivers. You will learn about Galileo, Glonass, Beidou, Receiver Architecture, Acquisition and Tracking.
The last part of the course talks specifically about the major Augmentation Systems, including the differential GNSS, RTK, and PPP. This part provides an overview of the Ground-based Augmentation Systems (GBAS), and Satellite-based Augmentation Systems (SBAS).
The course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of satellite navigation technology and its applications. Throughout the course, learners will focus on the Global Positioning System (GPS) as the primary satellite navigation system. Additionally, they will explore other systems like GLONASS and BeiDou. Students will learn about the functionalities of receivers and augmentation systems to interpret satellite data accurately.
The main learning objectives are:
Understanding Fundamentals: Firstly, students will grasp the fundamental principles of satellite navigation, including the functioning of satellite constellations, signal transmission, and receiver operation.
Comprehensive Knowledge of GPS: Secondly, a thorough exploration of GPS, its history, architecture, and the various segments – space, control, and user – will be provided.
Comparative Study of Other Systems: Next, learners will gain insights into alternative satellite navigation systems like GLONASS and BeiDou.
Receiver Functionalities: Additionally, students will learn about receiver types, design considerations, and signal processing techniques to interpret satellite data accurately.
Error Sources and Augmentation: Finally, understanding sources of errors and studying augmentation systems will be emphasized to enhance accuracy.
Applications and Challenges: Students will explore diverse applications of satellite navigation, including navigation, surveying, timing, and mapping. Additionally, they will be exposed to challenges like signal interference and cybersecurity concerns.
By the end of the course, participants will have acquired the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions regarding the use and implementation of satellite navigation in diverse applications and industries.
